Born to be a wine, Brunello has become a legend. It was created by some winemakers of Montalcino, in the heart of Tuscany, toward the end of the 19th century. They were looking for a red wine of exceptional quality and a long ageing period to accompany wild game, roasted meats, red meat and aged cheeses. And they obtained a wine which was destined to enter into the enological hall of fame, overflowing the chalice of Bacchus with joy. In the last decades, Brunello di Montalcino has undergone a general evolution in quality, and has made a name for itself throughout the world. In fact, Brunello di Montalcino was the first Italian wine to obtain the Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (D.O.C.G.) designation. It is exclusively produced, aged and bottled within the confines of the town of Montalcino in the province of Siena, using grapes from the Sangiovese species, locally called Brunello.
Ruby red colour with slight garnet hues resulting from ageing; intense and persistent perfume, with notes of red fruits jam; a smooth, velvety flavour with evenly balanced tannins, intense and persistent with spice notes and a hint of liquorice; harmonious and elegant on the whole.
